Peter and the Moon Man

The man in the moon learns about hygiene in this 1929 public information short promoting the benefits of all-electric mod cons.

Children's 1929 14 mins Silent


40 years before Neil Armstrong arrived on the moon, the moon man travelled the other way to learn a lesson in hygiene from little Peter and his mum - at least according to this odd little film from the Health and Cleanliness Council. The film was aimed at working-class families, but the Council, tellingly, chose a middle-class family in a well-equipped modern house to illustrate its message.
